President Carter And Wife Rosalynn Caught On Braves Kiss Cam

We all know the intense struggle that former President Jimmy Carter has been going through the last month or so.

His announcement that he had been diagnosed with cancer, at the age of 90, made every one of us gasp.

Personally, it made me incredibly sad. I'm not going to lie, I was more than a little misty watching his press conference that day.

We all of course want his treatment to go well. We all want him to be around many more years. We look forward to the many more things this man can do for the world.

Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, you have to admit that Jimmy Carter has one of the most successful post-presidency eras in the last century. His work here in the United States, and around the world, has inspired millions.

But we also had to ask ourselves, in the case that his treatment was not as successful at his advanced age, how would he spend his remaining time on this planet? He's done so much for the world, what would be next?

We saw a glimpse of that Thursday evening.

Just like me, just like you and just like all of us he wanted to spend some time taking in a ballgame.

He wanted to spend a little extra time kissing the one he loves. His beautiful bride and partner of 69 years.
